ALIVE AND RUNNING

RUN AND SAVE LIVES

Do you love running and animals? Did you know you could run and raise funds at the same time? Well, now you know! We are always looking for new runners to join the Alive and Running team.

All money raised goes towards ALIVE Rescue's mission.

For some, this is an easy choice because you’re already a seasoned runner. You may even be signed up for an upcoming race or planning to do so, but Alive and Running is not just for seasoned runners. Learn more about how it works and what you receive as a runner, below.
